The Colorado City/Hildale area has the world's highest incidence of fumarase deficiency, an extremely rare genetic condition which causes severe mental retardation. Geneticists attribute this to the prevalence of cousin marriage between descendants of two of the town's founders, Joseph Smith Jessop and John Yates Barlow. At least half of the double community's inhabitants are descended from one or both men.

Any other areas that you know of are scary like that? Please post away on here!!!

I thought it would be scary in the paranormal or urban myth sense, but this is indeed one of the scariest places I've heard about. :cry:

How's that scary? To me scary would be walking in Buffalo, NY at night by yourself near the abandoned factories/ steel mills.

Very well thought out post. I work on the phone and talk to people all over the country so I get a good feel for where I don't want to be. I get the sense that I should avoid Utah, Wyoming, Wisconsin, Maryland, Louisiana, Texas (I live here), New Mexico, Idaho, Massachusetts, Ohio and New Jersey. Really now that I think about it everyone is pretty unpleasant except for people living in California or Colorado.

Surely this post refers to the myth about the brother and sister marriage from medieval "Aberdeen, Scotland"

How do you mean? It's well known that the FLDS practices polygamy as well as cousin marriages, so genetic deformities are to be expected.

I went to Google to see if there was something more worrying than this. Sadly, typing in "scariest places in the US" brings up a whole load of ghost towns and what not.

Both of these may help. I couldn't find a list for City rankings, I guess rarely are charges through the city rather than the county.

Downtown isn't too bad as patrols are heavy there because of the theater district, stafiums, Cobo Hall and the casinos. What''s scrary is just ourside of downtown, especially in and around the Cass Corridore and the semi-abandoned neighborhoods. There the weak and/or unarmed are at high risk.
